Are you a scientist? Like a teacher who gives you anywhere near lessthan half of what you need to understand what is being taught, there’smore than that other half to find, to have minds meet minds. So, let metry to fill in what you’ve all too neglected to but by a late ‘70s form of Youtube’d video arcade game to simulate old-fashioned table tennis.Two, flat mirror surfaces are in parallel with each other as to face eachother, where both are moving through space at the same speed in their direction perpendicular to their planar orientation together. There thenlies between them a fixed gap across which one of several photons arefound to ping-pong their way by being hit in reflection off the faces of either of the two table tennis bats to act as mirrors in play. This wholegaming table is itself moving through space at the speed of light.You are a writer. Why didn’t you tell us what I’ve had to go and writeinstead? Are you trying to have something understood by everyone, or to rather have nothing understood by anyone? How can you copyrightthe latter of these two approaches? That’s like putting a reservation ona blank piece of paper, by calling no-idea your idea.You instruct us on how the photon’s ping-pong action is really only anoptical illusion.
The photon always moves at the speed of light relativeto the mirrors
; really? We are then asked to compare this motion witha simulated game observed by the relatively stationary observer to laga little behind the BBC’s live, sporting, outside broadcast unit.You’re half right, though not about some medium of ether in space, toexist anywhere near enough to as affect the notions of motions you’vearticulated about how possible it is for light to exceed light speed.Let us take one mirror only, to be moving in a direction perpendicular to its planar orientation; the unbending magnitude of the translation of the mirror through space is at the speed of light in a vacuum. A sourceof light in the experiment is unimportant, but for the fact that a photonmomentarily emerges out and away from the surface of the mirror. Wecan call this coincident emergence that moment when a photon was tohave been reflected off the mirror from somewhere else. The photon’sassumed now to be free-flying, ahead of the mirror, as travelling awayfrom the mirror at the speed of light; but how can it, than to remain onthe surface of the mirror from which it emerged? To maintain what wecould call the illusion of the speed of light, the photon must now crossthe gap of space at
the speed of light, as by a sum of the mirror’s
